Migration of the Wallmeslee family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Wallmeslee or a variant listed above: John Walmsley who settled in Virginia in 1623; Thomas Walmsley, his wife, two sons and four grandchildren arrived in Delaware in 1682; John Walmsley settled in Virginia in 1690..
